    i can burn xsvcd etc onto 2 cdr's, but i want to get the whole of a movie onto a dvdr instead. is this possible, cos it seems the way of creating a dvdr from a dvd9 is so so complex(still trying after a week!)i can get the svcd files ok by using tmpgenc, but how can i then burn them onto dvdr so they'll play in my standalone?

    SVCDs wont do it, as the SVCD resolution of 480x480/576 is not a DVD resolution.

    But here's a tip that I use:

    Download DVD2SVCD and use it (excellent results, as it fills your CDs, does the audio perfectly, etc) to produce CVDs (yes, C V D, not V C D) -- use 74min CDs (bitrate tab). You get CDs that play back on virtually all DVD players that support SVCD, _BUT_ those files can be put on DVD-R as well, because their resolution is 352x480/576 instead of 480x480/576 -- and that resolution _IS_ DVD compatible. So, your files work on both -- CDs and DVD-Rs and you can fit nicely two or three movies on one DVD-R if you don't mind small drop in quality.

    thanx for the advice, but i've tried using dvd2svcd before and had real problems with it(especially using it with cce). i do, however have templates for tmpgenc that will allow me to encode to 352x480/576, so what i'm trying to find out is if i can burn those onto dvdr's, and if i can, which software is best for doing it. i have dvdit, prassi primo, nero etc, thanx

    Any authoring software should be able to do it. And you're fine with TMPGEnc as DVD2SVCD is just a front-end to several tools, so you can do it manually, as you already knew.

    ok, thanx again. sorry to b a pain in the butt, but just to clarify.... i used to encode using tmpgenc to make xsvcd's and sometimes CVD's too, so is there a way that i can do this how i used to, but instead of burning to 2 seperate cdr's, burn to dvdr instead(as my dvd standalone was capable of playing these xsvcd's or svcds. the result that i actually want to achieve, is to get as near to dvd quality movie, but all on 1 disc(dvdr).

    IFOEdit is still the best way to do it -- stripping out unnecessary streams and leaving the video without re-encoding makes 1:1 DVD copies, but as you said in your first post, it is kinda difficult to learn.

    If you really want to put your svcds on to a dvdr use the link above. Used it before and seems to work fine. If you can strip all off a dvd to fit just movie onto a dvdr I would recommend it for the quality of playback
